5 stars Tony Levin is a brilliant instrumentalist, but he also has a knack for choosing proper musicians. He usually plays the first violin... well, the first bass/stick, but what I really like in this performance is the guitar soloes (by Jesse Gress), especially the one on Utopia.

The album as a whole doesn't have any weak moments. When played live, all the songs seem a little fresher. The studio works were wery eclectic, hermetic, but in concert they feel more organic. This is, frankly speaking, one of the best live albums I've ever heard. The songs I particularly recommend are: Tequila, Silhouette, Geronimo and Utopia (already mentioned). A curious one is Black Dog (Led Zeppelin cover), with Gress' guitar doing the sung parts, quite extraordinary.

And, by the way - Levin starts his singing career here (on a few tracks).

Lakesfield | 5/5 |
